ITS Australia has confirmed it intends to bid for the 17th ITS Asia Pacific Forum and Exhibition to take place in 2020, saying it would host the event in Brisbane.
The organisation’s President Brian Negus says the organisation has the vision, resources and capability, in addition to support from Australian industry and government, to host significant international events, such as the ITS Asia Pacific Forum and Exhibition.
“ITS Australia hosts Asia Pacific’s premier annual road tolling Forum, the largest industry-led ITS annual Summit in Australia and has hosted two successful ITS World Congresses, the most recent being the 23rd ITS World Congress, 2016.
“We were delighted with the outcomes of the last year’s ITS World Congress for the ITS community in the Asia Pacific region and globally. We left no stone unturned to ensure a positive delegate experience, enjoyed by 11,500 attendees from more than 70 countries.
“We will apply the same principles to our proposal to host the ITS Asia Pacific Forum and Exhibition, 2020 in Brisbane.
“Our track record speaks for itself and we have a comprehensive plan in place to ensure the 17th Asia Pacific Forum and Exhibition, Brisbane is another informative and enjoyable event in Australia.
“We nominate Brisbane as the bid city as it has the desired infrastructure and amenities and is an excellent example of a city embracing intelligent transport systems to ensure people and freight move safely, efficiently and sustainably.”
ITS Australia intends to host the Forum at the award winning Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC).
